About this app

Force your audio output to switch to headphones, speakers, or any other output, including USB and Bluetooth devices.

The microphone can also be switched, and on most devices the speaker can be completely muted if you so desire.

Additional features:
Widgets, Quick-setting tiles, and notification shortcuts.
Auto-Switch: Detect when headphones are inserted or removed, and switch to any audio output or mute/unmute the speaker automatically.
Restore-on-Boot: Automatically switch to the output of your choice when your device starts.

Common use cases:
This app can help if your device does not detect your headphones, or it thinks they are connected even when they have been removed.
It can also be used to mute the speaker when using headphones, so that loud notifications do not play via the speaker.
Want to use a headset microphone but still output audio via the speakers? also possible.
You can force audio to play locally on your device when using Android's native cast-screen feature.

Android 11 support:
Due to changes to made Android, this app cannot function on Android 11 and later.
There is now a native output-selection option found in the volume panel, which provides some of the functionality previously offered by this app.

Advanced users can trigger a switch externally using the following intent actions:
com.nordskog.LesserAudioSwitch.HEADPHONES
com.nordskog.LesserAudioSwitch.SPEAKER
com.nordskog.LesserAudioSwitch.BLUETOOTH
com.nordskog.LesserAudioSwitch.USB
com.nordskog.LesserAudioSwitch.CAST
com.nordskog.LesserAudioSwitch.MUTE
com.nordskog.LesserAudioSwitch.UNMUTE

com.nordskog.LesserAudioSwitch.NOTIFICATION_ON
com.nordskog.LesserAudioSwitch.NOTIFICATION_OFF

On Oreo 8.0 and later you must also specify the target package when using intents: com.nordskog.LesserAudioSwitch

I love this app because it allows me to use external audio devices to record and is the only app I've come across that works. However, the interface confuses me for some reason. It's only after trial and error that I'm able to get the configuration that I want. But it's only a small drawback (and a quick fix from a developer standpoint) when considering the overall how well the app functions. Thanks!

I need an app that can route audio. Inputs and outputs being customized. I want to control which input is being used and which output is being used. This app has an interface that looks like it can do those things but the"buttons" don't act as buttons. They're not selectable. I really want to buy the full version but I can't justify a purchase because I don't think this app does what I need.

My phone jack is broken on my phone. I have tried multiple apps to try and get my phone to switch audio from headphones to my speaker. Some apps work, some don't. This one worked the best, but there's still a problem. I can't use my internal microphone for some reason. I have tried different settings on this app, and it still doesn't work. Other than that, the app looks good visually, and I like that there are many different options of where to switch the audio.
